Nashville, Tenn.. May 3, '18
The country is informed that, as a
result of introduction of the Brandogee
resolution in the Senate, the President
is disposed to explain in confidence to
the senate foreign affairs committee
his reasons for opposing a declara
tion of war against either Turkey or
Till ll.fl rlj ... Iw.tl. A... I . .
Uiu. rtm, iU;li so iar as
can be judged, was exactly what the
Brandogee resolution was intended to
iiiu war resolution, it should be
borne in mind, was introduced in the
urst place by Senator King, of Utah
a democrat. Senator Hrandegee, of
( onnecticut, republican, merely pre
.lilted a resolution calling for action
ii the King measure. The Brando
gee resolution gave several senators,
mostly republicans, an opportunity to
state their willingness to vote for war.
Also it permitted senators, republican
id democratic, to make clear their
resentment of the frequently indicated
executive policy of ignoring the Senate.
The real force back of the discussion
was not so much partisan as bi-partisan.
It was affronted senatorial dig
nity and sense of importance expres
Some of the republicans, no doubt,
mo willing to make capitol of the nn
(agnoism between the senators and
Mie White House. In another sense,
it is also probably true that the ap
proach of selections is tending to
loosen the hold of the administration
on Congress an dto make easier the
development of free talk. Senator
Brandogee himself announced after a
day of discussion, some of it sharp,
that he had no intention of pressing
his resolution, "believing the publicity
given the tiuestion would cause the
foreign relations committee to give
it early consideration." Since Senator
Brandegee is a member of that com
mittee the chances are ho spoke with
warrant. The President evidently
thinks so, for he has given the fores
"I think (lie time has come," said
Senator Knox of Pennsylvania, "when
we should have information and have
And that expresses best of all the
motive back of the demonstration.
It really appears from every stand
point as if the president ought to meet
the Senate half way. It would be good
patriotism and good politics, too. It
is easy to enter Into the feelings of
senators '-ho have been at least hither
to prominent and who are treated as
children incompetent either to give
advice or be given information. If
there is an element of Justification for
the President's lack of confidence in
them, that does not change the situa
tion particularly. Certainly he could
find time to go through the motions
:' consultation now and then, and
present at least the appearance of
frankness. A little of that policy
would mollify the democratic sena
tors, at any rate, and would take away
from the republicans most of their
leverage. Beside it would actually
promote unity everywhere.
The Senate doesn't now especially
want war on Bulgaria and Turkey.
Some senators may sincerely feel that
war should be declared. But the ma
jority of them are iuite willing to
leave the matter to the executive, if
the executive will only be sufficient
ly polite to pretend to consult with
them. It naturally grates on senators'
s-ien to be told every day or two in
Creel's messages of "the government
to the people" and in all the adminis
tration newspapers that senators are
ignorant of everything connected with
the war, when one of the reasons they
re so ignorant is the fact that the gov
ernment won't tell them anything.
A little of the spirit of rapproche
ment between the White House and
the capltol would do away with inch
litter fights as that which has devel
oped In connection with the Overman
bill, for Instance. The Senate Isn't
really mad, so much as it Is peeved.
It takes man to laugh. Long ago
it was said that all below and all
above man in the universe are scri
ms . Lack of humor therefore is a
tuality that gods and beasts have in
common. But that is only apparent.
Beasts are inferior to humor. Gods
're superior to it. Man, being fallible
but conscious of his falliability, is
Umie qualified to preceive dispropor
ms. A sense of disproportion is very
close to a sense of humor, if indeed
is not that. Indeed, who has not
observed that the man who looks upon
himself only to be perpetually astound-
1 at his perfection has no use for
There is the blood relation between
the whanging of a slapstick and the
i.itle play of a bon mot. In the one
' e it is a lowering of physical man
into the stature of the beast, in the
other it is an elevating of his men
tality into a realm of thin air and
elusive ideas; and either the raising
or the lowering, if sudden and prepos
terous, is funny.
To lack the humorous sense is to
-ee life without perspective. The
orld in which the unhumorous man
'ives is a foreshortened world. To be
'humorous is much ihe same as to
'w unmoral; it is to be deprived of
' fundamental quality. Humor is the
fat streak, the mind's lubricant. It
s perhaps man's greatest gift, for it
makes his deficiencies, when not
ily likable, tolerable even to him-
In only one of man's great activi
; is it forbidden humor to intrude.
That is in his loves. It is then, one
ememliers, that man is most godlike
besides, a sense of proportion there
.ould be calamitous.
SALUTE THE FLAG.
Ilo American cilivians know how to
salute the flag? It would seem not,
for not one in a hundred is ever caught
doing it. Do they know that it is
lieir duty, and should be their pride
to salute the flag whenever it passes
md whenever formally dislayed just

Rev. J. A. Jones,
40 Green street, Nashville, Teun.
j 1 am in receipt of your letter of
'the 21th inst.
! I regret the Lexington, occurence
' and earnestly hope that this state
I may be spared further outrage of
I this kind. I called the Judge and
i Attorney General o fthat district the
' very moment that I heard that there
was a mob pursuing the Negro, and
ias advised that everything would
be done that could be done to pre-
vent mob violence.
However, this was but a short
time before the arrest was made mid
the offense was committed. The
: Judge was upon the ground and up
to the very moment of the lynchtng
' believed that such a thing could not
I have not gone into the props to
undertake to justify or explain my
actions in these matters, but there
has not been a N'ecro lynched in Ten
nessee since I have been governor,
or even if the probability of such
:'n not was brought to my attention,
but what I did something, and 'even
! more than the law required in an ef
j fort to try to prevent it. The an
' thoritv vested in the govenor in mat-
iters of this kind, is exceedingly lim
I ited, and certainly a governor can
not act to prevent a mob without he
I has pomp information that it is like
Jly to oclur. "When it is made to ap-
near to the governor from any
source, that a lynching is about to
take place in any county, under an
act passed by the legislature of JfllT),
called the "Ranger Act," the Gov
ernor may call out the Rawrers to
protect life and property. But you
must readily understand and appre
ciate that in order to do this that It
necessarily requires uome little time,
at least, ni;- these men are oalled
from the quiet and peaceable pur
suits of life, and before they can
deal with a mob they must be arm
ed and equipped so as to perf orm
the duties imposed upon them and
protect themselves from violence.
I have the utmost confidence in
Judge RarhPin and in the Attorney
General of that District, and believe
they will do what they can to pun
ish the parties guilty of this offense.
The trouble about securing this re
sult, however, is, these parties can
not be tried and punished, ns von
know, until the Grand Jury, compos
ed of thirteen oiMzoms of the county
in which the offence occurred. Ins
preferred a bill of indictment by a
vote of at lenst twelve of that num
ber: and. In my judgement, the
trouble will be to secure this bill of
indictment. However, I would not
want to be understood as saving
that the Grand Jury of the county
would not dio its duty under thotr
oath and under the charge of the
Court, and until they fall to d this,
let us hone that thoy will brine to
justice, those guilty of thi crime.

I will not ask your indulgence for
anv stace at this time for comment
upon this letter. But I feel that the
nubile should have the benefit of

Respect for family, love to God,

In temper sweet, in motive pure,
She loved and spoke the truth.
In kindness to the old and poor
She honored self and youth.
May a corner-Btone be built for her,
May a structure bear her name;
That will be built because she lived
Without spot or stain.
Life is reckoned not in years,
But by the way one lives;
'Twas not her learning or wealth
That won her love and friends.
Tis not her name from yonder grave

Hut 'tis a virtuous lite that pleads
And points a higher plane.
That we by emulating her
Her virtues may attain.
